Hackashop on news media content analysis and automated report generation

19 or 20 April 2021 Workshop website: http://embeddia.eu/hackashop2021/ <http://embeddia.eu/hackashop2021/>

Online workshop in conjunction with EACL 2021 EACL website: https://2021.eacl.org <https://2021.eacl.org/>

News media content, including news articles and the comments that readers post, is a rich potential source of insight into current events and opinions – but many challenges remain if we are to develop automated tools for analysis and reporting. This hackashop, a combination of workshop and hackathon, aims to bring together an audience from computer science, social science and industry to target these multi-disciplinary challenges.

In order to encourage scientific and technological advances, we have a dual format: (1) a traditional workshop format for discussing scientific advances is combined with (2) a preceding hackathon-type event in which participants are provided with news media data and a suite of component tools to experiment with novel approaches and solutions. Hackashop participants are welcome to participate in one or both activities. The workshop day will then bring participants together to share new insights from both research- and experimentation-based work.

Topics We welcome work broadly in the area of natural language processing of news media, addressing the various needs from the readers who consume news of their personal interest to journalists who keep track of what is going on in the world, try to understand what their readers think of various topics, or want to automate routine reporting. Cross-disciplinary collaborations of computer scientists with media researchers and other social scientists are especially welcome, as are collaborations with the media industry, in order to reach richer insights into the needs and opportunities in news media analysis and generation. We encourage contributions that address multilingual settings, including but not limited to low-resource languages.

Important dates for workshop papers Jan 18: Paper submission deadline (see instructions below) Feb 18: Notification of acceptance Mar 1: Camera-ready papers due April 19 or 20: Workshop date

A separate call for hackathon participation will be issued in December 2020. Due to the covid-19 situation, the hackathon will be a virtual event with remote participation and a flexible schedule (rather than an intensive coding and experimentation event).

Paper format and submission Submissions must be in PDF, conform to the official style guidelines for EACL 2021, and be at most 8 pages long, including references. Shorter papers are also welcome. Papers may be anonymized but it is not obligatory.

Workshop proceedings Accepted, peer-reviewed papers will be published in EACL workshop proceedings. After the meeting, we aim to organize a special issue or an edited book volume with selected, expanded papers from the workshop, possibly selected hackathon contributions, as well as a review of all the hackathon activities and their results.
